    Author of Blockbusters: Five Keys to Developing Great New Products

    Over 60% of new technology ventures fail. There are five(5) critical practices that separate the high-growth companies from the rest. You will learn these tested strategies that will help you develop new medical products more successfully, for less investment - and do it faster. Topics covered will include (i) identify your ideal customer (ii) articulate your customer value proposition - clearly and succinctly (iii) size your market - accurately and believably (iv) identify and secure channel partners (v) create an accurate growth schedule, (vi) value your company, and (vii) raise external funding faster and easier

    2:00-5:00 Regulatory Considerations for Selecting Materials for Medical Devices
    Dr. Linda Braddon, President, Secure BioMed Evaluations, USA

    All too often in the design of a new medical device, regulatory considerations do not come to the forefront until after the device is designed. By performing a regulatory impact review of your material choices very early in the design process, a new medical device company can expedite their time to market and reduce the regulatory burden. By performing simple activities early in the process, such as identification of FDA friendly materials, manufacturers can reduce the burden of proving safety of their medical devices and decrease the time to product launch. An overview of materials selection in the light of regulatory approval, will be presented.
